7.05

BELLA SOFIA is improving with every run and made it three top wins in a row at Belmont last time. One of those victories came over this trip and she can make a bold bid from the front.

Gamine is a short price with good reason given she has nine wins from her ten career runs. She had ten lengths in hand when taking a Grade 2 two outings ago before scoring at the top level latest. Another big run is expected.

Ce Ce had five lengths in hand at Santa Anita last month and can grab third.

7.40

LIEUTENANT DAN comes here in fine form having landed a winning hat-trick in a Santa Anita Grade 2 last time. He was value for more than the half-length margin as he drifted off a straight line. He has a decent draw to use his early pace and can hold on for the win.

Glass Slippers weaved through the pack to take this at Keeneland 12 months ago. She isn’t in quite the same form but wasn’t disgraced in the L’Abbaye at Longchamp. She needs luck but will get a strong pace to aim at. A Case Of You won in France and has a chance if handling this quicker ground.

Golden Pal has a bit to find on the clock but had plenty in hand at Keeneland latest. This is his best trip and he’s on the upgrade.

LIFE IS GOOD clocked a personal best when upped to this trip for a Grade 2 success at Belmont last time. He has been working well and is hard to beat. Silver State was beaten at odds-on in a lesser race last time after missing the break. He landed a Grade 1 earlier this season so is clearly better than that. He stays well and could bounce back.

Ginobili has won his past two starts here, including a hot contest last time. He pulled well clear there and has every chance of hitting the frame.

Pingxiang has been going well in Japan with two convincing wins over 7f. He could improve for tackling a mile. Eight Rings came back to form at Santa Anita last time and can outrun his odds.

8.59

LOVE can end her season as she started with a win at the highest level. She battled to score at Royal Ascot and has run well in defeat three times since. This quick ground will help and her little break is ideal as she goes well fresh.

War Like Goddess is a threat after four victories in a row. She took a Grade 1 at Saratoga last time in a good time. Rougir battled to win the red-hot L’Opera at Longchamp last month. She has place claims if repeating that soft ground form in these quicker conditions.

Loves Only You has won at the highest level in Hong Kong and stays well. She is proven on firm so isn’t dismissed. Audarya has a wide draw but won this at Keeneland last year from stall 11. She’s taken the same route and ran well behind Rougir at the Arc meting.

9.38

JACKIE’S WARRIOR looks hard to beat after winning by almost seven lengths at Parx last time out. That was the latest in a line of excellent performances that include three Grade 1 successes. This trip is ideal and she’ll be hard to catch.

Special Reserve has a wider draw but can figure if repeating his victory at Keeneland. He has six wins over this trip and can hit the places.

MO FORZA keeps churning out the wins and made it four in a row at Santa Anita last month. That followed a speedy success over this course and distance and fast ground is ideal.

Space Blues has a good low draw but likes to come from behind so will need some luck. He was a Group 1 winner in France last time so couldn’t be in better nick. He’ll go close if avoiding too much traffic. In Love stepped up to Grade 1 level to score at Keeneland in good style latest. He came right around the field which was impressive and he’s in the mix again.

Mother Earth is respected despite her form dipping lately. Her Guineas win came on fast ground so a return to these conditions may help. Blowout battled from a long way out to land a Keeneland Grade 1 and has an each-way chance at fair odds.

11.00

LETRUSHKA has six wins and a second to her name this year including three Grade 1 contests. She specialises in this trip and wasn’t extended in scoring in hot company at Keeneland last month. Her trainer has a fantastic record at this level and she’s the one to beat.

Malathaat was just touched off by Clairiere at Saratoga two runs ago but turned that form around in a good time when they last met. She stays a bit further and can put that stamina to use with a late run into the places.

TARNAWA ran a belter when third in a blanket finish for the Arc. She was impressive when winning this race at Keeneland last year on firm ground and rates the best bet on the card. Domestic Spending won three Grade 1s in a row before his neck second at Arlington last time when long odds-on. He’s had a little break since that August effort and is a big threat if staying this longer trip.

Walton Street clocked a good time when winning the Canadian International at Woodbine for Charlie Appleby. He is a proven stayer who can figure if coping with this fast ground.

Stablemate Yibir won a valuable contest at Belmont on his US debut in September after taking York’s Great Voltigeur on style. He is proven on rattling going so should go well again. Teona won well in France last time and is another to note.

12.40

ESSENTIAL QUALITY saw out this trip when winning a battle for the Grade 1 Travers Stakes at Saratoga. He likes to be near the pace, which is a good idea at Del Mar and he’s had a little break ahead of this target.

Stablemate Knicks Go has really impressed with his past three wins. He tries the extra furlong for the first time but shapes like a stayer. Art Collector looks a solid each-way bet after clocking a good time at Belmont. He made all there and could try to slip the field.

Hot Rod Charlie had lots in hand when winning the Pennsylvania Derby and has yet to finish out of the frame over this trip. Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ran his best race since when scoring at Santa Anita last month. He’s out wide, which may make his front-running style a little tricky, but you can’t write him off.
